Success: War on Children: 1 in 6 Has Developmental Disabilities

Something is very wrong here.

Shell Tzorfas on YouTube pointed us to this U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) paper “Trends in the Prevalence of Developmental Disabilities in U.S. Children, 1997–2008” and what are some pretty astonishing figures.

The joint CDC—Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) paper not only revealed that one in six children across America suffered from a developmental disability in 2006-2008, but the rate of parent-reported developmental disabilities in their children had increased 17.1% from 1997 to 2008.

Worse, in the 12-year period, the prevalence of autism increased nearly three hundred percent (289.5%).

Males were twice as likely to suffer from developmental disabilities as females. The sample size wasn’t small, either; the study included some 119,367 children.

One in six. That means if you go to just two of your neighbors’ homes with children, it is very likely that at one of them, you will find at least one child with a developmental disability.  And these figures were from 2008, so that begs the question: how bad are they now?

And moreover —

What is happening to our children?

The rates of autism have skyrocketed and continue to get worse each year in this country. The CDC now estimates autism effects 1 in 68 children in the U.S., up a whopping 30% from 2012. For boys, the rate is now 1 in 42. The CDC continues to say genes play a role, but the agency readily admits it doesn’t know what is causing all this autism.

The prevalence rate for autism before 1990 was only three children per 10,000. When the CDC began surveillance of the study population in 2000, it was one child in every 150. Look at the chart above. Autism just keeps going up.

Back in 2009, when the autism rates first rocketed to 1 in 88, the Environmental Working Group suggested exposure to neurotoxic chemicals could definitely play a role: most notably, mercury.

“Upending the federal government’s approach to regulating toxic chemicals and putting tough emissions standards in place at power plants are two good places to start,” said Cook. The federal Toxic Substances Control Act has allowed the chemical industry to flood the marketplace with toxic chemicals, including neurotoxins, with virtually no proof they are safe for people.

While the medical “professionals” keep insisting this drastic increase is simply due to better detection methods, eventually that won’t hold water if the autism rates continue to soar as fast as they have been…unless they just up and decide basically every child is autistic.

Then again, the CDC is currently ignoring a whistleblower within its own ranks who came forward to admit that the agency knowingly manipulated data to hide a link in one of its major studies between the MMR vaccine and autism — a link which showed a 340% increase in autism specifically in African American boys given an MMR shot at age three or younger.

The implications of this admission, and the millions of children potentially harmed, is staggering.

Even if you pretend that isn’t happening, America has the most aggressive mandated vaccine schedule in the world. The CDC now recommends up to 37 shots of 14 different vaccinations by the age of two, prompting the National Vaccine Information Center to ask, “Is the atypical manipulation of the immune system with more and more vaccines in early life setting some children up for chronic disease and disability?”

In short, are our children healthier for it? As disease, auto-immune disorders, and permanent disabilities continue to trend perilously upward year after year, the answer is nope, not really.

Parents are expected to continue to shoot their children up no questions asked with a cocktail of antibiotics, formaldehyde, monosodium glutamate (MSG), bovine fetal tissue, polysorbate and heavy metals like aluminum and the mercury-containing preservative thimerosal. When these are shot into the bloodstream, they completely bypass the majority of the body’s natural immune system which resides in the gut.

A review of compensated cases of vaccine-induced brain injury published in Pace Environmental Law Review in 2011 found that the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) “has been compensating cases of vaccine-induced brain damage associated with autism for more than twenty years” and concluded, “Officials at HHS, the Department of Justice and the Court of Federal Claims may have been aware of this association but failed to publicly disclose it.”

The government has quietly paid out millions of dollars to vaccine victims, but we just continue to shoot more and more of these cocktails into our tiny children and, increasingly, our pregnant women. …

Experts: James Foley Beheading Video Likely Fake

Forensic analysis confirms Infowars investigation that footage was staged as war propaganda

Confirming Infowars’ analysis on Thursday, British forensic experts have concluded that the ISIS beheading video involving James Foley was in all likelihood staged using “camera trickery and slick post-production techniques.”

An international forensic science company which does work for police forces across Britain found that, “James Foley’s execution may have been staged, with the actual murder taking place off-camera,” reports the Telegraph.

The experts noted that despite Foley’s executioner appearing to draw a knife across the neck area at least six times, no blood is seen. The video itself does not show the actual beheading, merely a still image which purports to show Foley’s decapitated head resting on his body.

“Aymenn al-Tamimi, a fellow at the Middle East Forum think-tank, remarked that ISIS has greatly improved their video production over the last few years,” reports the Inquisitr. “Techniques to fake a beheading would not be difficult for them to manage, and the video doesn’t exactly leave their failures on the hidden: Despite six slashing motion to James’ neck, no blood can be seen in the video; Foley’s reaction seems to be very disconnected with what is actually occurring, the analysts said.”

This point was also covered in our analysis which emphasized how calm and collected Foley appeared to be as he read out his statement, a demeanor completely contradictory to the notion that he was about to be brutally executed.

The experts also concluded that a blip in the footage suggests Foley misread one of his lines from the script and had to re-film the sequence.

The obvious question that arises out of this is why ISIS militants, who have quickly developed a global reputation for their barbarity and carelessness for human life, would not simply have beheaded Foley on camera without the need to stage the event.

The only logical conclusion, whether Foley was later killed or not, is that the video was not produced or released by actual ISIS militants but by western intelligence agencies to be used as a casus belli to expand military expansion in the middle east.

For years we have exhaustively documented how so-called Al-Qaeda, Bin Laden and other terrorist propaganda videos were in fact produced by companies working on behalf of the Pentagon and the Central Intelligence Agency.

It has also emerged that the identity of the individual seen staging the murder, one Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, is a former rapper from a wealthy family who left London to fight in Syria. Bary fits the profile of an informant for British security services.

The beheading video has been used as a poster child to push for a renewed U.S. military strike on Syria, a prospect that was derailed last year after it emerged that a supposed chemical weapons attack which was blamed on the Assad government had in all likelihood been carried out by western-backed rebels.

U.S. officials have cited the “new context” for confronting ISIS that was spurred by the release of the Foley beheading video, with Washington signaling its intention on Saturday to prepare a new military assault on Syria.

In our analysis, we pointed out several other factors that clearly suggested the James Foley video was not what it purported to be, including the absence of other militants who normally appear in beheading videos, the lack of references to the Koran and no chants of “Allahu Akbar” as the execution is taking place.

Watch our original analysis of the Foley beheading video below. Note the video does not contain any footage of the staged beheading, which wasn’t actually shown in the original footage anyway. Despite this, YouTube partially censored the video by labeling it “offensive” and blocking access to non-You Tube account holders.

Massive Outflow of Refugees from East Ukraine War Zone, Resettled in Russia

Just over the past five days, 22,000 have left Donetsk and Slavyansk.  These numbers have been quoted by the UN. The number of people that leave their homeland due to non-stop shelling by Ukraine forces is on the rise.

Those who for some reasons were unable to leave (in Lugansk there still are 200,000 residents) ended up in catastrophic conditions – no electricity, no drinking water.  According to the UN, the number of Ukrainians who cross the Russian-Ukrainian border is mounting. In our country [Russia], there are about 730,000 displaced people from south-eastern Ukraine.

Refugees get to the border on their own, everyone using their own means.  From the border, the get help and move further inland.

In Russian regions, conditions are being prepared for the refugees so that they could live in peace, bring up their children, work, and, most importantly, forget the nightmare they had to go through.

They feel lucky to be able to have left the war zone and stay alive.  Their journey was long, and horror is still lingering in their eyes.

Temporary dorms are already waiting for them – enough for about 700 people.  Elena has recently arrived with her children.  She is trying to adjust to the new place.  She says that she fears the most for her parents, who were left behind in Donetsk.

The canteen staff are trying to prepare a 3-course meal.  Dinner is followed by a visit to a psychologist, who is helping them to relieve their pain through speaking.  Some people come smiling, but during the conversation they suddenly break down.

“This is psychological protection.  It’s normal because emotions have to come out,” says psychologist Yana Demyanova. …

Collateral damage on the road to our great leaders’ utopian dreams.   On your knees before the great Satan!

US-NATO To Deploy Ground Troops, Conduct Large Scale Naval Exercises against “Unnamed Enemy”

The World is at a dangerous Crossroads.

The Western military alliance is in an advanced state of readiness. And so is Russia.

Russia is heralded as the “Aggressor”. US-NATO military confrontation with Russia is contemplated.

Enabling legislation in the US Senate under “The Russian Aggression Prevention Act” (RAPA) has “set the US on a path towards direct military conflict with Russia in Ukraine.” 

Any US-Russian war is likely to quickly escalate into a nuclear war, since neither the US nor Russia would be willing to admit defeat, both have many thousands of nuclear weapons ready for instant use, and both rely upon Counterforce military doctrine that tasks their military, in the event of war, to preemptively destroy the nuclear forces of the enemy. (See Steven Starr, Global Research, August 22, 2014)

The Russian Aggression Prevention Act (RAPA) is the culmination of more than twenty years of US-NATO war preparations, which consist in the military encirclement of both Russia and China:

From the moment the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, the United States has relentlessly pursued a strategy of encircling Russia, just as it has with other perceived enemies like China and Iran. It has brought 12 countries in central Europe, all of them formerly allied with Moscow, into the NATO alliance. US military power is now directly on Russia’s borders. (Steven Kinzer, Boston Globe, March 3, 2014, emphasis added)

On July 24, in consultation with the Pentagon, NATO’s Europe commander General Philip Breedlove called for “stockpiling a base in Poland with enough weapons, ammunition and other supplies to support a rapid deployment of thousands of troops against Russia”.(RT, July 24, 2014). According to General Breedlove, NATO needs “pre-positioned supplies, pre-positioned capabilities and a basing area ready to rapidly accept follow-on forces”:

“He plans to recommend placing supplies — weapons, ammunition and ration packs — at the headquarters to enable a sudden influx of thousands of Nato troops” (Times, August 22, 2014, emphasis added)

Breedlove’s “Blitzkrieg scenario” is to be presented at NATO’s summit in Wales in early September, according to The London Times.   It is part and parcel of the  Russian Aggression Prevention Act (RAPA) which directs President Obama to:

“(1) implement a plan for increasing U.S. and NATO support for the armed forces of Poland, Estonia, Lithuania, and Latvia, and other NATO member-states; and

(2) direct the U.S. Permanent Representative to NATO to seek consideration for permanently basing NATO forces in such countries.” (S.2277 — 113th Congress (2013-2014))

More generally, a scenario of military escalation prevails with both sides involved in extensive war games.

In turn, the structure of US sponsored military alliances plays a crucial role in war planning. We are dealing with a formidable military force involving a global alliance of 28 NATO member states. In turn, the US as well as NATO have established beyond the “Atlantic Region” a network of bilateral military alliances with “partner” countries directed against Russia, China, Iran and North Korea.

Major US-NATO Naval Exercises

War preparations are invariably accompanied and preceded by major military exercises.

US-NATO multi-warfare naval exercises are to be conducted off the Florida coastline under operation FLEETEX, with the participation of the US, Canada, Germany and Turkey.

The underlying premise of these war games is “global warfare”. All four NATO member states are adjacent to strategic sea corridors, which are contiguous to Russian maritime areas, respectively the Bering Sea and straits (US), the Arctic Ocean (Canada), the North Sea (Germany) and the Black Sea (Turkey). …

“War preparations are invariably accompanied and preceded by major military exercises.” One could make the same observation about the urban warfare exercises going on in american cities.

Military Helicopters descend on Twin Cities

On the evening of Monday, August 18, the US Army commenced unannounced military exercises in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota. MH-60 variant Black Hawk helicopters buzzed through the downtown and residential areas of the two Midwestern cities.

The ominous exercises, which took place over three days, were led by the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security in close collaboration with the local police. They were carried out without public warning, despite the fact that they included late-night low flyovers of residential districts by thunderous war equipment.

Hundreds of stunned residents placed emergency phone calls in the hours after exercises began as several black helicopters weaved in between skyscrapers of both cities and swept through areas at low altitudes and high speeds. It was only after the widespread response that the police and military acknowledged what was taking place. (Video of part of the exercises can be found here.) …

They just want to PROTECT us from the big bad terrorists that they fund with our tax dollars.  And maybe suppress a rebellion against the predatory white collar criminals that are busy stealing everything in sight.  FDR called them “banksters”.  As in banker gangsters, as in organized crime.   I think he had it right.

Corporate Media Plays Dumb on Spread of Radical Islam

Lies and propaganda set stage for invasion of Syria same as it did in Iraq

“The voice of an apparent British militant narrating the video showing the beheading of American journalist James Foley has triggered renewed questions about why the U.K. is a breeding ground for jihadis,” NBC News reports today.

“At least 400 Britons are among the estimated 2,000 Europeans who are fighting for the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), according to Prime Minister David Cameron. And the ease with which Europeans can travel into Syria through Turkey has alarmed intelligence officials in the West.”

This sort of reporting is ignorant or, more likely, engineered to be misleading. NATO and the United States have used Turkey (and Jordan) as a staging area for the proxy war against the al-Assad government in Syria for months.

“All the available evidence indicates that U.S., U.K., Israel, Turkey, France and Saudi Arabia meticulously planned the genocidal covert war on Syria for years before actually launching it in 2011. Right from the beginning, Turkey has been at the epicenter of this war in every possible respect,” writes Turkish researcher Cem Ertür.

The establishment media, particularly its liberal faction, has covered the proxy war staged in Syria in fits and starts, so NBC’s supposed ignorance is disingenuous.

For instance, PBS aired a Frontline segment on “American handlers in Turkey” working with Qatar to train “rebels” how best to engage in war crimes and “finish off soldiers still alive after an ambush,” and the alternative media, including Infowars.com, regularly provides factual information on how the U.S., NATO, Turkey and the Gulf Emirates not only support this proxy war but also covertly fund and train ISIS.

Reality, as usual, is ignored and dismissed by the establishment media as it fulfills its assigned role as a war propaganda division of the U.S. government and the military industrial and intelligence complex.

Here is a sampling of Infowars.com coverage on the U.S.-NATO sponsored war in Syria:

Saudi Arabia, Sunni Caliphate, NATO Run Secret Terror Army in Iraq and Syria

NATO’s Terror Hordes in Iraq a Pretext for Syria Invasion

ISIS and the Plan to Balkanize the Middle East

Rand Paul: U.S. Created “Jihadist Wonderland” in Syria

Ron Paul: Syria Chemical Attack A ‘False Flag’ 

More Evidence U.S. Funds al-Qaeda Terrorists in Syria

Susan Rice Admits U.S. Giving Arms to Al-Qaeda in Syria

Turkey Behind Sarin Attack in Syria

British Intelligence Nurtured Jihadists for Years

Jihadist terrorists, sheltered and encouraged by British intelligence, have operated behind the scenes for decades, a fact completely ignored by the establishment media as it devises a pretext for the invasion of Syria.

For background on this, see:

British Intelligence: Her Majesty’s Terrorist Network

British Intelligence Asset Haroon Rashid Aswat Escapes Extradition

CIA Double Agent? CIA and British Intelligence Created Ruse Known as Al-Qaeda

David Cameron to Arm Woolwich Terrorists?

Specifically see The British, the Middle East and Radical Islam for detailed background on how the British, and later the U.S., created, nurtured and expanded Islamic terror networks.

Following remarks by Cressida Dick, the Metropolitan Police’s assistant commissioner and head of specialist operations in Britain, that the country will experience increased terrorism for “many years” as a result of young British men participating in the Syrian war, Richard Barrett, a former head of counter-terrorism at MI6, said the war in Syria funded and supported by the United States, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, with U.S. military trained terrorists “is likely to be an incubator for a new generation of terrorists.”

This “new generation of terrorists” is now coming online with a predictable flourish of hyperbole and misinterpretation provided by the establishment media.

ISIS, like Saddam Hussein’s illusory weapons of mass destruction and his vaporous collaboration with al-Qaeda, is the latest, and likely the greatest (in terms of murder and terror) manufactured terror threat.

The Bush neocons – with the help of The New York Times in lockstep with the rest of the establishment media – snowballed fabrication, half-truth and outright lies into a flimsy predicate for mass murder (more than a million Iraqis died) and war crimes approaching those committed by the Nazis and the Soviet Union.

Obama the establishment teleprompter reader, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Secretary of Defense and their counterparts in Europe will elevate the threat of ISIS, a threat honed by the U.S. military, into a full-fledged attack on Syria.

NBC and the rest of the corporate media will do their part as well.

 

MILLIONS OF AMERICANS ARE VULNERABLE TO STARVATION

The cost of food has been steadily increasing in places like Thailand and Venezuela as evidenced by the fact that since the beginning of 2014, riots are occurring in countries that are suffering through extreme food shortages.  These mass protests movements may all have one thing in common, increasing food prices are the cause of the civil unrest.

According to Dr. Yaneer Bar-Yam and his research colleagues at the New England Complex Systems Institute (NECSI), they are collectively stating that civil unrest, spurred by food shortages. may be anticipated for their effect by a mathematical model that correlates the variables of rising food costs, diminished and that are related to income and civil unrest. The present data suggests that America is ripe for the same kinds of civil disruption that we are witnessing in Thailand and Venezuela. How bad could the civil unrest become?  Nobody can be certain except to say that America is entering into uncharted waters. …

In calculating the overall inflation rate, the government does not count the price of food. However, there are several reliable food inflation figures and the food inflation rate is estimated to be between 19% to 22%.

In the article, “Food Price Inflation Scares the Fed” the commodity food costs were exploding on the upside. Calculation of the food inflation rate, given the lag in commodity costs impacting prices on grocery store shelves, we find that the annual U.S. food inflation rate is now running at a staggering +22% and the rate is increasing with no end in sight to the escalation.

The real and specific cause for food inflation is the $940 billion of additional monetary stimulus from the United States Federal Reserve’s quantitative (bail out) easing over the last twelve months.  Both the cost of food and gasoline inflation rates are awakening the variables associated with hyperinflation. Please note that the $940 billion of giveaway bailout money is nearly half of what we take in as a country in taxes. If you truly want to be accurate about America’s economic future, repeat the accurate mantra, “There will be no economic recovery” and “Many Americans are going to starve to death”. ….

The economic situation is a major factor in US  foreign and domestic military posture.   They need a false flag to have someone else to blame for the catastrophe they have created.
